Mayor's Statement

Dear residents, 

January 15, 2021


Dear residents, 


This week, the Province of Ontario again declared a state of emergency due to the increasing numbers of COVID-19 infections. With this announcement came a stay at home order. This is in addition to the lockdown measures already in place since December 26, 2020.


The City of Clarence-Rockland announced yesterday that its municipal parks, sledding hills, skating rinks and trails will remain open during this period. The objective is to allow residents and their children to get some fresh air if they deem these activities necessary for their well-beingYou must, however, remain vigilant and avoid gatherings.  If you find the place too busy when you arrive, come back later. We have established a maximum amount of people for each activity. To guide you, signs will be prominently located in each park very soon, if not already done.


Please, if you absolutely have to visit one of our municipal parks, stay within your family bubble, and stay at least two metres from other people. It is also recommended to wear a mask. As mentioned yesterday, municipal enforcement officers will closely monitor the situation to ensure that the sanitary measures are respected. If we find that the situation is becoming too dangerous to the health of residents, we will have no choice but to issue fines or close the parks.


I therefore ask you to leave your home only when it is completely necessary.  However, if we behave as if all our outings are necessary, we will be in lockdown for a long time to come.



Guy Desjardins
